Countryside campaigners issue fresh warning on housebuilding

The Campaign to Protect Rural England warned that the policy would cripple efforts to regenerate run-down urban areas and leave permanent scars on the countryside - one of the nation's greatest environmental assets.

Neil Sinden, director of policy at the CPRE, spoke out as campaigners gathered in London over the weekend to launch a bid to persuade the Government to reconsider proposals on planning for housing.
